If you ask my why I care, it’s because every once in a while you find out that what you did actually made an impact. That’s why I’m passionate about volunteering for Wellspring, you get the feeling that you are appreciated, and what you are doing makes an impact.

Wellspring has been so important to me throughout this cancer odyssey – I simply would not be doing so well without the programs, compassion, and genuine kindness of this community.

At Wellspring there is no pressure and nobody judging you. You are just free to be yourself and to work at your own pace. Art is my favourite. I love spending my time there drawing, painting, creating a collage. In art classes… I can lose myself in it.

Wellspring helped me turn my life around. Right away I got the sense that I’m not alone. After cancer, your life is changed forever, but now I was around others who knew what it felt like and that helped.
